Governor Greg Abbott blocks federal efforts to help COVID test migrants in cities and counties in Texas while blaming President Biden.
CNN reported, “Texas governor Greg Abbott is blocking efforts by the Biden administration to provide federal funding for Covid-19 testing for released migrants, a senior Homeland Security official tells CNN … The Department of Homeland Security has plans The governor forwarded the governor’s office to try and get support for cities and counties to help mitigate the spread of Covid-19, the official said. The DHS has already launched plans to use the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s funds to support community efforts to test, isolate and quarantine migrants who have been released from border control custody, the official said opposite CNN. However, the scholarship must be approved by the state before it can be distributed to border communities. “
The Biden government is trying to help Texas fulfill its responsibility to test migrants for COVID, but the Texas governor is blocking aid from reaching the communities it needs by not approving the grant money.
Governor Abbot denies the state grants for COVID testing, lifts the mask mandate, and then blames the President of the United States for the increase in COVID cases in his state.
Abbott is deliberately trying to make Texans sick for political reasons. Joe Biden tries to stop the virus from spreading in Texas while Greg Abbott has taken on Donald Trump’s role as the Republican super-spreader.
